Lawsuit Argues Against Cutbacks in Bull Trout Habitat

January 9, 2006 By: Marshall Cutchin

A new lawsuit filed last week aims to add back the nearly 2/3 of waterway mileage removed by U.S. Fish & Wildlife in 2002 from the original designation. “Two Montana conservation groups have filed a lawsuit demanding the Bush administration restore cutbacks in critical habitat for the bull trout, a threatened species whose demands for clean and cold water conflict with logging and mining.” From the Associated Press.
